The quiet game

Close your eyes: We’re going back to childhood, before words, before the complexities of adult relationships. Back to pure feelings, meeting and clashing. By giving and receiving emotions we’ll learn to know each other, through fights and games and moments of solitude, up until we look into each other’s eyes and realise we’re all grown up. But, as always, there is a price to pay.

The quiet game is a completely silent scenario, in which every interaction between characters happens through movement and contact. A group of nameless, voiceless children go through daily lives made of ritualised games and gestures, in search of their lost identities. Through the lens of this unusual childhood, players will get the chance to directly confront their base emotions, to know themselves, to see themselves in each other’s eyes.
